At the very least...

Shouldn't they at least control their access by limiting an account to coming from a specific IP address or range? Or require the one-time pad as mentioned before?

Valve pushes Portal freebie

Headmaster

Semantics check, please!

Does 'where until 20 September, it is completly free' mean the game can be downloaded for free and played this weekend only, or does it mean it can only be downloaded during this weekend and playable indefinitely?

Removing SEP

Been there, done that!

I have successfully used AppRemover (http://www.appremover.com) to get rid of Symantec Endpoint Protection when I need to decommission a PC (remove corp software) but don't want to wipe it. Hope that helps in the future!

I suspect that Apple is also spraying these with a UV reactive paint as well, knowing their 'paranoia' over warranties. This is one of the oldest techniques (IBM, since 1980 at least) for determining if a product was opened.

Unfortunately.....

It probably wouldn't. How would you prove the key was on the stick, and not in your head instead, or as well? Good luck proving that particular negative. I wonder, have the previous convictions tried to use the 'I don't remember' defense?

Antitrust & IE

Are there any connections to the years-ago issues they had with anti-trust compliants, when Microsoft claimed IE could not be uninstalled, due to it being part of the O/S? Seems the IE has now been made dependent on the O/S???? Just wondering......
